We’re not talking about jewelry here, this is about MUSIC! You may prefer to save some money and go the DJ route, but if you want people up and moving, and your dance floor to be packed all night, then you need the personality and pizazz that a live band provides.
Here in Austin, especially, you’ve got a lot of options when it comes to live bands. You may want to choose based on your favorite era of music. There are party bands that specialize in each musical decade, particular genres, or tribute bands. I say not to limit yourself to anything and go with an experienced party band that plays a variety of covers. One of our favorites is The Pictures Band located here in Austin. The Pictures are some of the best wedding entertainment we have ever seen. They keep the crowd jumping, and sound exactly like whatever song they are playing.
- The Pictures Band and the happy couple
The Wedding Theater has worked weddings with them several times both in Austin and in nearby cities around Texas and they’re really a groovy group of guys. They play all the hits from the 50s to current. From Dance to Country to Latin – whatever you fancy they play it.
